If you “like your families dysfunctional and your novels whip-smart*,” enter the giveaway for Francesca Hornak’s bright, wryly-observed family drama SEVEN DAYS OF US and stop back for the tour beginning October 17.
A week is a long time to spend with your family. Now imagine being quarantined with them over Christmas.
That’s the delicious premise in
SEVEN DAYS OF US, about a dysfunctional British family forced
into quarantine together. Eldest daughter Olivia, a doctor, has just
returned from treating a life-threatening virus in Africa and must spend
seven days in quarantine.
Her family, forced into
lockdown with her, decides to spend the week in their crumbling and
isolated country manor, Weyfield Hall. Each arrives carrying secrets and
the Birch family under one roof for the first time in years, keeping
secrets is no longer an option. And when a shocking, unexpected visitor
arrives, the family’s pressurized state will
boil over, spilling problems—and possibly the deadly virus—outside the
gates of Weyfield Hall.
residence with Olivia are her unabashedly frivolous younger sister
Phoebe, fixated on her upcoming wedding; father Andrew, sequestered in
his study writing scathing restaurant reviews and
longing for his glory days as a war correspondent; and sweet bumbling
matriarch Emma, who’s hiding a secret that will turn the whole family
upside down. Anyone who loves their family—in small doses—will relate to
the inner thoughts of each character.
This Is Where I Leave You meets “Love Actually” in
SEVEN DAYS OF US.
You won a bed and breakfast in yet another contest, Mom? Please say I am not hearing you correctly?
Poor Faith. Her mother, Connie, has always entered contests ever since she was a child and has never won, but then she wins this one which seems unbelievable because of the prize. Connie has won this prize after writing an essay about why she should win the bed and breakfast, and Connie is determined to come all the way from New Mexico to claim and see her prize.
Faith lives in New York City and accompanies her mother to the bed and breakfast at Wave's End at the Jersey Shore. As predicted, the place is in bad shape and nothing like the pictures in the contest.
As Faith argues with her mother about the "prize," a hurricane is making its way up the coast. Faith goes back to New York and then returns as the hurricane is gaining in intensity to make sure her mother is safe.
Faith finds more than she wants to find when she returns with her mother's impulsiveness being a very big problem this time.
AT WAVE'S END is an enjoyable read with characters that were very believable and lovable. A mother/daughter team is always a treat because it can go two ways: the best it can be or the worst it can be. :)
You will be comparing your relationship with your mother and might see some similarities as well as differences.
Secrets kept for a long time and finally revealed are part of AT WAVE'S END, but do they bring mother and daughter closer or farther apart?
Food was another major component with three of the characters being chefs, and who doesn't like to talk about food and gorgeous kitchens?
If you need a fun, light, heartwarming read that shows the resiliency of and the generosity of mankind, then you will not want to miss AT WAVE'S END.
It has something for everyone and the reason I enjoy women's fiction....family, love, tenderness, surprises, a few tears, and warmth.
ENJOY!! I certainly did. 5/5

What happens when a major social media fail airs all your dirty laundry?
This is the delicious premise behind
KEEP ME POSTED—a novel about two sisters that become Internet sensations when their most private thoughts accidentally go viral.
Touching on themes of love, marriage, and the bond of sisters,
KEEP ME POSTED will have readers thinking about the secrets we
trust to be kept just that, and the real-life likes and dislikes from
millions of strangers if those secrets were to be revealed. Sure to
resonate with fans of Jennifer Weiner and Jane Green,
Beazley’s fresh debut is a funny and heartwarming look at modern
marriage, social media, and sisterhood.
KEEP ME POSTED
Two sisters share the surprising highs and cringe worthy lows of social media fame, when their most private thoughts
become incredibly public in this fresh and funny debut novel. The once-close Sunday sisters have not
done a bang-up job of keeping in touch. Cassie is consumed with trying
to make her life work as a Manhattan wife and mom to twin toddlers,
while her bighearted sister, Sid, lives an expat’s
life of leisure in far-off Singapore. So Sid, who shuns social media,
challenges Cassie to reconnect through old-fashioned letters. Soon, the letters become a kind of mutual
confessional that have real and soul-satisfying effects. They just
might have the power to help Cassie save her marriage, and give Sid the
strength to get her life back on track. But first, one of Cassie’s infamous
lapses in judgment comes back to bite her, and all of the letters wind
up in the one place you’d never, ever want to see them: the Internet.
